At the end of July, Limagrain completed the acquisition of AdvanSeed through its holding Vilmorin et Cie. The international Danish seed company specializes in the breeding, production and distribution of hybrid spinach and leafy vegetable seeds.

AdvanSeed will join VILMORIN-MIKADO in order to strengthen its position on the global leafy vegetable market, on which spinach is the second largest product after lettuce. VILMORIN-MIKADO thus confirms its ambition to become a key player on this market.

The Advanseed breeding station located in Odense, Denmark will become VILMORIN-MIKADO‚Äôs northernmost station, thereby offering new climate conditions for research, and consequently opportunities for the creation of new varieties.
